We are accredited as a genuine social enterprise – the Social Enterprise Mark is an independent guarantee that we put the interests of people & planet above shareholder gain. We have been externally assessed against sector-agreed criteria and have proved our commitment to using profits and income to create benefits for society and the environment.
As part of our accreditation, we have set-up a Social Impact Fund where 51% of all profits go back directly to helping families.
Examples of projects supported by our Social Impact Fund:
- Providing two meals a day and free childcare to a range of families in need.
- Providing additional SEND support to children so they can better access childcare provision.
All schools who have rolling packages with us can apply to have their families access the fund.
Being a social enterprise is not just about what we do but showing we are part of a diverse international network of accredited social enterprises, which have been assessed as meeting a robust and credible standard, upheld by an independent Accreditation Panel. Social enterprises are trading businesses that reinvest income and profits to address social and environmental issues, above that of shareholder profit motivations. Through social enterprise, businesses like ours can operate with a positive impact on the world we live in.
